Libreville

— 2 nights
The capital of Gabon and home to almost half of the country's residents, Libreville differs from many African cities, with paved roads, clean streets, and luxurious residences.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at L'Eglise St-Michel Libreville and St Marie Cathedral. Next up on the itinerary: stroll through Pointe-Denis Beach, shop like a local with Marche du Mont-Bouet, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Cathedrale Saint Pierre, and try your luck at Casino Croisette.

Though tourism in Gabon remains a fledgling industry, the benefits of exploring this untempered place of wildlife-rich rainforests and ethnic diversity are numerous. A large percentage of the country remains protected as national parkland, allowing the dolphins playing in the Atlantic and the chimps and forest elephants to breathe a sigh of relief. The population includes around 40 different ethnicities, but the country has thankfully avoided the conflict and ethnic violence common among many of its neighbors.
